Kajol and Ajay Devgn have been married for 19 years now after their four-year long courtship. They tied the knot on February 24, 1999, in true Maharashtrian style. The couple has two children together- Nysa Devgan and Yug Devgan. While their bond has stood the test of time, did you know that no one wanted them to get married in the first place?
The two received flak from their friends and media because they were ann unusual pair given their contrasting personalities. A media house reported that their relationship wouldn't last and the critics labelled them as an 'unlikely pair.'
Recently, Kajol appeared on Neha Dhupia's hit chat show called No Filter Neha. The show is known to scoop out all the gossip from celebs and engage in candid conversations with them.
In an interaction with Neha, Kajol made some revelations we had no clue about. She told Neha that no one was supportive of her marrying Ajay Devgn, not even her own father. She said, "Nobody wanted us to get married besides his family and my family. My family also was iffy. My dad didn’t talk to me for a week when I told him I wanted to get married. It was because I wanted to get married."
She further added, "Ajay and I were very different people, so lots of people had reservations as to what we would be like as a couple and we were not very social even then. Not a lot of people had met us together or knew what we were like together."
Their marriage, like any other, has had ups and downs. Pos their marriage, there were rumours about Ajay's affair with another actress and Kajol's discomfort with her in-laws.
On being asked what's kept them going, Kajol said, "We have survived because both of us have worked through it together and we have two kids. It’s almost like we have become like one person who has these two children like their arms."
Long back on a chat show, Kajol spoke about how Ajay has been a pillar of support for her. She said, "Wherever I am, he always looks out for me. I never feel like I'm floundering anywhere. I know that he is always behind me, standing there. He backs me 100 per cent, and he knows that I'm there, as well."
Looks like opposites truly attract!
